| Abstract: In this talk, we will discuss the linearized equations of motion of the newly proposed three dimensional
gravity, known as minimal massive gravity, using its metric formulation. By making
use of a redefinition of the parameters of the model, we observe that the resulting
linearized equations are exactly the same as that of TMG . In particular the model
admits logarithmic modes at critical points. We will also discuss about several vacuum solutions
of the model, specially at a certain limit where the contribution of Chern-Simons term
vanishes.
